The whole "only add $2 to the ticket price if you pick up at the venue" is bullshit with this whole Livenation/Ticketmaster merger. I just recently bought my Take Action tour ticket (advertised as $12.65 GA advanced ticket) and my Dashboard ticket (advertised as $23.25 GA advanced ticket) both at the House of Blues (Orlando) and it you only add $2 for the "venue charge" it would all add up to roughly $40. I was charged $49. It never use to be that way. When HOB was using ticketmaster, it was only a $2 charge. So in reality, this merger is hurting peoples pockets and could eventually boycott these venues (probably won't happen thou lol). I'm just putting in my 2 cents and my experience with this whole merger thing. It sucks. smaller venues ftw!
Take a business class. Things work the opposite of this. COMPETITION makes prices go down. Companies compete for your business so they do what it takes to do that. Now that there's one giant company they can do whatever they want.
i was being sarcastic lol ... that's what the "ha" was for
